Nikon 500mm or Sigma 500mm lens for safari?
9 months ago

Hello

I wish to know if anyone can comment on the performance of the above lenses at wide open aperture (f4 vs f4.5).  The application would be for a safari.  There is a saving of about $2000 in price and is it worth it?

Or is the difference in performance of the Nikon significant with the D800?

Thanks
